The Wedding of Cody and Colette, November 5, 2016 https://www.azflashbackphotography.com/blog/2016/11/the-wedding-of-cody-and-colette November 5th was a day of celebration for Cody and Colette.  Eunice and I had the privilege of being there to capture the memories.  I had the honor of driving Cody to the wedding and speaking with him about what a wonderful thing he was about to do.  He is a great young man who was ready to embrace the responsibility of marriage.  We have been family friends of the Ferris family for years and know Colette is a wonderful young woman.

The wedding started for us early in the day and went into the evening.  Lighting was tricky but we were able to take hundreds of great pictures.  The family portraits were a lot of fun for us.  We especially love the Pastor League, Darin and Kandy, Todd and Susan.  We can't wait to get the pictures up.

Although exhausted, the first thing we did when we arrived home that evening was to make five total backups of every picture we took.  I don't feel safe until I know that the pictures are secure.  Now, Eunice is working almost non-stop on pictures....and there's a lot of them!

Thank you, Cody and Colette, for letting us be part of your day!

Carefree's Enchanted Pumpkin Garden https://www.azflashbackphotography.com/blog/2016/10/carefrees-enchanted-pumpkin-garden This past October 30, Eunice and I traveled to the town of Carefree to take part in their Enchanted Pumpkin Garden.  The event centers on the talents of Ray Villafane, a local artist known for his pumpkin-carving abilities.  We arrived late, around 8:00pm, so it was pretty dark.  It was a lot of fun and just a really nice night.  Please enjoy some of the pictures we took.

Joy and Family https://www.azflashbackphotography.com/blog/2016/7/joy-and-family A week ago, we had the opportunity to take pictures of a family.  Most were taken at sunset.  Everyone had fun, even though it was hot.  We had to work to get a few of the family members to smile, but our efforts payed off.  We will have the pictures posted soon.

Wedding of Olga and Esteban https://www.azflashbackphotography.com/blog/2016/7/wedding-of-olga-and-esteban Eunice and I took wedding pictures on July 8 for Olga and Esteban.  It was a small backyard wedding.  Most of the pictures were taken at night, so lighting was tricky.  Some were taken with flash and some with natural lighting.  It was obvious that the two were in love.  We can't wait to get the pictures up.

Kassie Renteria https://www.azflashbackphotography.com/blog/2016/4/kassie-renteria My wife and I recently spent several hours taking graduation pictures for Kassie Renteria.  She plays volleyball and was able to get access to the high school gymnasium for some fun pictures.  From there, we went to a grassy field to take pictures with dandelions.  After that, we went into a farmer's field for some scenic shots in front of the mountains.  Next, we took some street shots on a long road.  After that, we took some pictures with her posing with a good ol' Ford truck.  It was hot, but we all had a great time.  Kassie was a pleasure to work with and we hope she and her family enjoy the pictures.

Happy Easter Renteria Family! https://www.azflashbackphotography.com/blog/2016/3/happy-easter-renteria-family Eunice and I had a blast the other day taking pictures of the Renteria family....Lorenzo, Cindy, and Lorenzo Jr.  We were at Marley Park in Surprise.  The sun was falling quickly, but we managed to get a few good pictures. ]]> (Flashback Photography) https://www.azflashbackphotography.com/blog/2016/3/happy-easter-renteria-family Fri, 11 Mar 2016 23:49:24 GMT Cody and Colette https://www.azflashbackphotography.com/blog/2016/2/cody-and-colette Eunice and I had a great time this past weekend taking engagement pictures for Cody and Colette.  As the sun went down the lighting became more challenging, but the pictures are turning out great.  We took pictures by a creek...and in the creek...boots wet and all.  While taking pictures, a train roared by and we were able to capture images with the train in the background.  We're still working on the pictures and can't wait for the lucky couple to see them.

Merry Christmas Bosch Family https://www.azflashbackphotography.com/blog/2015/11/merry-christmas-bosch-family Last week we took pictures of the Bosch family at the park.  As always, we had a great time with friends.  Brandon Jr was sure busy and little April Rose worked the cameras like a star.

 

As always, thank you Brandon and Christy for letting us be part of your family memories.

Merry Christmas Taylor Family https://www.azflashbackphotography.com/blog/2015/11/merry-christmas-taylor-family Last week we spent some time in the park with the Taylor family.  We had a great time.  Olivia, the older daughter, stole the show.  She was extremely photogenic and loved the camera.

Ioana and Otniel Images Finished https://www.azflashbackphotography.com/blog/2015/11/ioana-and-otniel The images for the wedding of Ioana and Otniel are finally completed.  All I can say is...WOW...a lot of images.  We are excited for the new couple to see them.  For almost 3 & 1/2 weeks, we worked on these pictures, several hours a day.  We removed crumbs from jackets, stains from dresses, price tags off shoes, and many more things that will likely never be mentioned.  Lighting was tricky in the reception hall, as it was very dim, but we made it work.

 

 
 

 

Thank you Ioana and Otniel for allowing us be part of your day!

Ioana and Otniel https://www.azflashbackphotography.com/blog/2015/10/ioana-and-otniel Well, the picture taking started at 7:00am and lasted until 4:15pm.  We traveled to four different locations.  We started first at Ioana's house, then went to a park for portraits.  From there, we went to a church for a wedding ceremony.  After that, we went to an amazing Romanian church for the reception.  We took hundreds of pictures.  When we arrived back at our house, the first thing I did was to make multiple back-ups, four to be exact.  I don't feel comfortable until I know all images are safely transferred and stored.  My wife and I were pretty tired, but had a great time.  Now comes the task of sorting and editing.

The wedding of Megan and Jordan https://www.azflashbackphotography.com/blog/2015/10/the-wedding-of-megan-and-jordan Well, the wedding is over and the new union begins.  My wife and I took several hundred pictures.  Now comes the task of editing.  Eunice is taking the lead here.  It was getting dark outside and that means that lighting gets tricky.  We managed to take good shots and cannot wait to share them.
